Edge Sport questions on factory coolers

Recommended Posts

I was considering a new 2020 or 2021 Edge ST, but seeing how much of it is the same as the earlier Edge Sport, I was wondering if Sport owners could chime in:

 

Does the Edge Sport have a PTU cooler? You can tell if there are 2 cooling hoses going towards the bottom of the PTU (by the drain plug area). Someone told me their Edge Sport did not have one. Ford apparently installed these on the MKZ/Fusion with 2.7/3.0

 

Does the Edge Sport have an aux trans cooler that is oil-to-air (like a radiator behind the grille)? I know there is an oil-to-water exchanger on top of the trans that is used to help warm up the ATF and to regulate the ATF temperature using coolant. That's why the ATF temperatures are never much cooler than your engine coolant temperatures. My Fusion Sport has a trans cooler under the left fog light as well as the cooling block on top of the trans.

 

I'm pretty sure the Edge Sport doesn't have an engine oil cooler (would sit next to the oil filter cap) as I've only seen them on the truck 2.7 engines, but I thought I'd ask anyhow.

 

Thanks in advance

regarding this question, i can't say for everyone for absolute certain but it seems my  2016 at least does not have the engine oil cooler, although the head is machined for it, and there appears to be a block off plate installed.

 

to that point, i want to install an engine oil cooler maybe, but the clearance in that spot is pretty tight because there are two computers on the shock tower directly adjacent to where the eng oil cooler would be if it were installed, and since i don't want to buy one off of Ebay just to find out the dimensions of it, then find out it can't fit because its too big.. i'm kind of stuck.

 

so the question i'd ask (sorry for the hi-jack) is, 'Can we add an OEM type oil cooler to the 2016 edge sport, or will it simply not fit in the space available?' IIRC some lincoln models have the same drivetrain and have the oil cooler.. and i would think, the same clearance, though i've not been under the hood of any to verify..

 

Anyone?

Don't know about gen 2.5, but gen 2 sport had no oil cooler (typically coolant system linked)

Transmission cooling, with and without active warmup

Active transmission warm-up uses reclaimed heat energy to warm up the transmission faster. This, along with a durable, synthetic, ultra-low-viscosity fluid – engineered specifically for the new Edge – reduces component friction and helps save fuel

An oil cooler IS mentioned for the 3.5 tho

but the 2.7 does have an oil cooler other different applications and it appears there is a block off plate..

Do you know if anyone has tried mounting an OEM cooler to the rear head where the block off plate is?

or is it impossible to make it fit?
